Evangelion 1.11 Movie, Small Changes and Additions

An increment in the first decimal place in computer software version numbers usually mean a large number of changes have been made, few being significant new features but not enough to give the original design a complete overhaul.

Wondering what was so special about the tea they had to give it a mention in...

Nippon Animation Requests Removal of Old Anime

And I thought last night was enough of an odd coincidence... Not long yesterday after someone on Youtube warned "watch your back", Nippon Animation who owns the rights to Muka Muka Paradise and Fifteen Boys Stranded at Sea had the videos blocked off on my channel. I uploaded them a few months ago because none of these shows are available...
